Fresh off of the release of his #1 album, ‘Neon Future I,’ Steve Aoki has dropped the video for his latest single, “Delirious(Boneless).” The single, a collaboration with Chris Lake & Tujamo, which also features rising rapper Kid Ink, is a bouncy, hip-hop infused but still thoroughly EDM record, that is a surefire party starter.
